Siphons off bits of "Play It Again, Sam," "Hannah and Her Sisters" and "Manhattan Murder Mystery" in its underwhelming tale of a thirtysomething Parisian's search for Mr. Right.

One supposes that if, by some unlikely convergence of circumstance, the mind that came up with this premise could also invest it with wit, the result would have seemed like genius. It does not.

The premise of Paris-Manhattan is simple enough; unfortunately, so is everything else about writer-director Sophie Lellouche's debut feature film.

"Paris Manhattan" uses a character with a Woody Allen obsession as an excuse to pilfer words and ideas far beyond its ability to synthesize them.

Lellouche, in making her homage to Allen, left out one of his essential qualities: bite. "Paris-Manhattan" drifts by and never leaves a single toothmark.

[A] shallow, witless but pretty enough French ode to Woody Allen, couched in a loose revision of 1972's Play It Again, Sam.

Lellouche does herself no favours by wearing such influences on her sleeve, yet her cast are game, the locations look great, and the whole enterprise has an agreeably frothy touch.

This attempt to Re-Play It Again, Sam isn't nearly as amusing as Allen's early, funny films. Mind you, neither is Allen nowadays.

It's less affectionate homage than deeply freaky case study.

The result is merely to make Mr Allen seem more like a genius and the people behind this monstrosity more like . . . Well, let's not get into unkind zoological comparisons.

This fizzy romantic comedy is slight but charming and perks up considerably when Allen himself makes an appearance.

So light it needs tethering to the floor with sandbags.

By itself, this would just be one of those workmanlike relationship films the French turn out by the yard; but all the Allen stuff throws its mediocrity into sharp relief.

This beautifully shot French romantic comedy about a Woody Allen-obsessed pharmacist struggling to find love in Paris is passionately directed, emotionally engaging and absolutely charming.

Sophie Lellouche's slick debut is chock-full of Woody-com quotes and references, yet it remains an inconsequential, undernourished trifle that does sod-all with its potential.

First-time director Sophie Lellouche keeps this puff pastry-thin piece of romantic fluff as light and inconsequential as it needs to be.

As light and airy as a soufflé, but not without charm. Taglioni and Bruel are both convincing as the reluctant lovers who just might embrace the inevitable.

Audience Reviews for Paris Manhattan

A romantic comedy that is not romantic nor funny; instead, it is silly and uninteresting in the same proportion - and not even an adorable cameo by Woody Allen himself is able to lift this movie from the mere ordinary.
